Olympus' E-620: measures merely 130 x 94 x 60mm

The 12.3Mp E-620 measures 130 x 94 x 60mm and is equipped with a 2.7in tilting/swivelling LCD display. A selection of “Art Filters”, which include "high-grain black" and "high-saturation pop art" are also included.

Viewing on-screen images should never be a problem

The camera’s illuminated buttons will help you find the correct dial when snapping in the dark, while 29 pre-set image modes and face detection should make your subjects and their surroundings crystal clear. Dust reduction also helps keep unwanted specs at bay.
